Gemma Ward Says She's Not Done with Modeling Yet, Expects to Be Back on Runway Next Year

Gemma Ward Says She's Not Done with Modeling Yet, Expects to Be Back on Runway Next Year

>> Soon after Gemma Ward popped up in New York for her 22nd birthday, a spokesperson from her Australian agency Vivens went on record saying of Ward: "Gemma hasn't committed to returning to modelling at any time soon." The comment spurred many to conclude that Ward was permanently done with modeling.

Now, however, Ward herself is speaking out.  She Twittered yesterday: "Thankyou everyone for your support, all i'll say on the subject is im content with my decision but i have said nothing will be permanent."  And she emailed The West Australian to let them know she plans on returning to the catwalk next year: "I have not 'quit modelling' and my fans back home can expect to see me back at work modelling and acting in the new year."

What has she been up to? »

She has been taking Shakespearean acting classes, and her mother Claire Ward, who also spoke to the paper, says that Gemma plans to stay in the United States and is considering a three-year course at Yale. "She's 22 years old and has worked incredibly hard. She's had a very difficult few years personally and now she's having a really lovely time doing things she wants to do and enjoying being young."  Recently, Gemma and her father visited Malawi with The Hunger Project, a charity which raises funds for building, and her mother says she also visited Rio de Janeiro: "She was very interested to see what's behind the glossy facade of Brazil and looking at the slums, with a view to doing something there in the future."
